Where to watch

Most of us watch the Big Air Jossi Wells Invitational from the ridge off Skyline. You will need a lift pass to get there! There will be commentary, music & giveaways up there so it's really the spot to be.
Down at Base the best spots will be The Lounge or the Noodle Bar decks – both look right out at the jump.

For the Pipe Jam, your Base spots are the same as for Big Air. If you want to get close to the action, the best spot will be at the bottom of the International Halfpipe.

The best place to watch the Rail Jam will be from the sides of the park – a spectator viewing area will be set up to keep everyone safe so please make sure you stick there!
